Hello friends.

I recently got a 1660 Ti from a 970. I am interested in potentially getting a new part for my PC to help improve performance. However, I am unsure on where to start regarding which part I should select to upgrade. Potentially, the oldest one, or soon to be most obsolete.

My specs currently are as follows;

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 6-Core Processor 3.60 GHz
MOBO: ASUS ROG STRIX B450-F GAMING AM4 AMD B450 SATA 6Gb/s ATX AMD
Ram: CORSAIR Vengeance LPX 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3000
Storage: KINGSTON SA2000M8250G
WDC WD10EZEZ-22MFCA0
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti
PSU: Corsair CX450M

Viotek 1080p 144 Hz Monitor

Any help or input is extremely appreciated!

Thank you again friends, and I hope your day is great :)

Advice: Wait until PC component supply and pricing re-stabilizes.

I could see a larger capacity SSD as a good upgrade. Games are huge these days.

Second, a higher wattage (and good quality) PSU. Your future upgrades will continue to climb the power/performance ladder, so a 650W PSU (while overkill for now) would leave most/all your options on the table in future upgrades.

Honestly you have a pretty balanced system right now.
What upgrades you wanna do depends on what games you play,or if you are doing something besides gaming.
I wouldnt touch anything as @tennis2 said,just wait,save some money.
